 It would be nice to see several new characters that aren't from the human world, to make things more interesting.

Eeh, honestly I'd be more interested if the upcoming characters were, say; Warly and Warbucks than a pack of four unknown non-human creatures. I just like humans and some already established characters more for some reason

Everyone wants Warly because his crockpot would be THE item :wilson_ecstatic:

I enjoy to be a nomad sometimes, Specially when going into the caves. With that portable crockpot i would be a GOD! Hahaha. 

The only new thing i want in a character would be that he/she/it could only eat veggies. It is the only thing I don't know why is not implemented yet. Who eats pumpkins? Watermelon? Yeah, i thought so. 

Yeah, probably would mean "dragonpie diet only" in the med-end game, but still. It would be really fun to actually make the farms important.

? Tbh I don't get that idea of a portable croc pot being so important... The mats for croc pots, are very easy and you can simply precraft and place them later...

Yes, but people don't like the idea of: 

1-Get all the materials
2-Make the Crock Pot
3-Cooking
4-Then hammer or leave the crock pot
5-Repeat 1, 2, 3 & 4 again

Personally, I would like see a variation of Portable Crock Pot in DST available for all the characters, using the Alchemy Engine (like the Blanderbuss in Hamlet).

As the guy from above said, it is more a "lazy thing" than a "hard thing", and you will have to constantly "burn resources" (yeah, it is cheap, but still) to make crockpots to just cook some meatballs. 

But imagine this scenario: you are exploring the ruins, and it took you some time to find the entrance, you run out of food, and boom, you kill a splumonkey, grab some lichen and cook meatballs on the fly without thinking about having enough materials to build anything, just one inventory slot. That thing is REALLY strong. 

Sure, you can have bundling wrap and save the lichen and whatnot. But that is a mid-late game item, and we are talking about a starting item that lets you "not to have a base" and still be a GOD. 

Wolfgang would be really really strong with that thing.

Imo DST is all about preparation. I always build a mini base in the lichen zone with at least a chest, a croc pot and a fridge. It's super cheap in mats and useful. So in that scenario u describe to me is such a non issue having a portable croc pot tbh. And having one as Wolfgang would be simply absolutely broken, cuz u are gonna offset the only thing that makes Wolfgang sorta vulnerable. If you want to turn your game ez game then go ahead and download a mod for portable croc pot in dst, but I'm 100% sure the devs are not gonna officially introduce it in dst for the sake of balance.

No need to be defensive.

But see? "if you want to turn your game ez mode". You recognize it is a really strong item, that is all i was implying. 

Do i need it? Nope. Do i want it? Nope. If Warly or a portable crockpot is introduced in the game, am i gonna use it? You can bet your left buttcheek i will. 

Also, i have a base in the lichen zone as well (i pretty much live in there), so yeah, do not assume I don't know how to play the game just because i can see how stupidly strong a portable pot can be. I was the second person in the world to get the platinum trophy in ps4, and i have +2000h on my back. 

That being said, have an awesome day, sir! :)

What does that mean? (am a PC player and have no clue about what "trophies" are for PS4 version of the game - also am too lazy to actually search web 'till I get a comprehensive answer; but from my past knowledge reading these forums it seems "trophies" in DST context are something more of an inside joke "pat-on-the-back achievement" than anything, introduced for PlayStations because Sony demands such things for marketed games under their platforms, a mandatory thing)

@PeterA Will the Heirloom rarity skins carry as well from the Steam Market when the update for it goes live? Practically what I'm saying is when the game updates itself the current GoH, Triumphant, and the Survivor from the market will go from Elegant to Heirloom.

Yeah, the DST ones are nothing to brag about, i just meant that i "speedrun don't starve". Also, i don't really know what achievements the pc version has so we could compare, sadly. 

The platinum one is the one you get when you get all achievements, you know: kill everything, get everything, etc.

Oh, ok. Done everything that can be done in DST context, got it.

PC version doesn't have any achievements, as Klei stated they don't like "goading" players in some ironed game goals, hence "your world your rules" motto. Yet were kinda forced by Sony's policy to plaster some achievements over to their platform and did so in a jokingly manner.

True, curiously, Maxwell (well know by break the 4th wall) have a funny quote related to this, when examines Accomploshrine (a exclusive structure for console versions, his purpose is just give two achievements):

There's a difference with caves from DS to DST...mainly in the fact that you're running two servers simultaneously. 

There was no way for them to avoid this, because in a multiplayer game some people are going to stay above ground, and some people are going to go into the caves, and so they have to run on two interconnected servers simultaneously.

It doesn't matter if it's offline or not, it's still going to be running two servers, it even gives you a disclaimer when adding caves to a world.

Suggestions: 

Nerf Wolfgang hard by giving him at least a present and serious setback and Wickerbottom's books;

Fix the pathfinding because it's where most exploits come from;

Come up with more mobs or mechanics that seriously affect plants and farms;

Nerf some mobs loot or add more risk. Bunnymen, catcoons, werepigs(manure farming) for instance give way too much resources for relatively too little effort. Shadow creatures are easy to keep farming forever, so maybe add an increasing chance for a MUCH more vicious one the longer you stay insane and the darker it is(tier 2 shadow knights would be nice).

Thulecite crown should require a red gem for real.

Snow Chester is op.

Klei has a small team for DST and this is Klei, a studio which is built on idea of nice and restful game development, not like EPICnoobgames which can pump out content which sucks by the way but they have a tons of different trade-offs for that *cough cough* Tencent.

It's worth mentioning that Klei also supports Tencent by selling games through its platform. Tencent's a questionable company for sure, I'm not a fan by any means, buuut...frankly we're all a part of that power structure now. Something about having your cake and eating it too.

Heh, League of Legends' developers actually did a study on this in the past. Turns out that when you track it, while people might express interest in non-human creatures, they're a lot more likely to actually play the human ones; presumably due to being more relatable. So you're not alone in that.

Also please bring back Warbucks for literally any reason lmao.

Oof, yea. Only way I can get the game to run decently with caves is by running a Dedi server; even though it's still on the same computer, that breaks up the processes in a way that lets it take advantage of multiple cores.
...if they could make the game run entirely separately from the 'server' portion by default and just have the game manage before-startup settings and send the startup/shutdown commands, that would solve quite a few problems on this front. And I wouldn't have to go through nearly as many hoops to get it running in a viable way...

So I've got a serious question, why haven't the devs started at least an event for shipwrecked content on DST? I feel they should have Shipwrecked mode and now with the new DLC should do so soon. I'm not hating on these fun events, I just feel sometimes like taking on a Sealnado would be possible with friends. But still, good luck with the new characters.
